Numerous media outlets have reported that Madagascar's President Hery Rajaonarimampianina has been impeached. While members of parliament have voted 121 in favor of his impeachment out of 125, there are a few reasons why the president is still projected to stay in charge for the time being:
- The constitutional court has to approve of the motion to impeach. The procedure may require a prolonged period to review the allegations.
- The legitimacy of the vote has been challenged over accusations of fraudulent counting.
